Victory Garden Initiative celebrates Food Leadership Graduates

This fall, Victory Garden Initiative (VGI) celebrated a new crop of graduates from its yearlong Food Leader Certificate Program. Empowered with the knowledge and support to grow good food in the city, the Food Leaders envision a sustainable, abundant, accessible and holistic food system that empowers diverse communities of all ages throughout Milwaukee.

As part of their curriculum, they learned to grow food at VGI’s Move Grass Class gardening education series. Topics included starting seeds, garden planning, composting, managing pests and preserving food. They also attended three weekend retreats focused on understanding food system issues and completed community-enhancing projects.
